Jeremiah Williams had a nice article in the paper about Martin Luther King. He paid for it with money he gave to Jerry Jackman and then took back. It happens so fast Jerry is still not sure who owes what? Then Jeremiah talked about the necessity of everyone having a will. Do it now. His grandmother did not have one and needed a lot of convincing to get one. Finally when he told her “look when you die your spirit goes to heaven, but your body stays here”. Tell us what to do with the part that stays here. So she finally did. Now he says to everyone get a will and do not wait!

This is a state of the art training facility for athletes. It all started when he was 36 years old and had been coaching for 10 years at Modesto high. He weighed 260 lbs. and decided to get in shape, lose 60 lbs. and join the MJC basketball team. He lost weight and made the team. During his first couple of practices he befriended a player and found out he had not eaten in 2 days. So he helped him to get something to eat and get back on his feet. Next at Columbia Junior college while playing basketball the same thing happen, but with a different student. He was starting to see a trend. Young athletes that are hungry and that needed someone to mentor and guide them. He had just sold his business and decided to use some of the funds to open a state of the art training facility that also would have a mentoring program in place to help the athletes that trained there. Brett Butler joined his efforts at the facility and now they have a place that can help all aspects of a young person’s life. John is paying it forward for the mentoring he received himself when he was 19
